The list of performers is put out promptly at 8:30pm. This list is not posted online. You must be present to find out if you are performing.

How long is each set?
Sets are 3 to 5 minutes in length. Most sets are 3 minutes.

Is there a 2 beverage minimum for The Mic?
Nope! The Mic is different from our regular weekly shows so there is no beverage minimum. We do still offer full bar service!

Can I make a reservation to hold seats?
Unfortunately, no. All seats are first come, first serve. We recommend arriving early to guarantee a spot in the showroom.
